Birthday Bash at the "Waage Woods"

As mentioned in an earlier post, my nephew just turned one and his party was held at Erik's parents' new house, located on a beautiful 5-acre plot that has been appropriately named "Waage Woods."

This party had it all - horseback rides (thanks to the neighbors across the street), playground equipment, ATVs, and tons of yummy food.

Here's the birthday boy - love the hat (and it would become the "official" horse riding attire).

Claire taking her turn. She's a natural.

I'm thinkin' we're going to start seeing "pony" on her Christmas list.

Papa with one grandson...

...and the other. I love this picture.


Birthday boy on his new bike. Think he's having fun?

So here's some more experimenting with PS actions. The first is the original (straight out of camera). That's my nephew's boot, by the way.

The rest are as follows:
1. Boost
2. Heartland
3. Boost/Sepia
4. Vintage

I'm so often behind the camera, that I rarely get a picture of me with my girl. I thought this one was pretty cute. Love that girl.

Aaaand...I'm done with Colorado pictures. Now, on to the rest of our trip (after I take a little nap).

Yep, it's me :) Where are you nowadays? We're in small town Nebraska...I'm teaching music for Omaha Public Schools 3 days a week and being a wife and mom 24/7. Good to find you. How's that brother of yours?

I vote for the "Vintage" pic. Love the way it's shaded.

And I love that girl so much too! She's my favorite 5-yr old niece. ;)
